Our pilot project with the John M. Kelly Library at St. Michael’s College is an edition of the letters Sheila and Wilfred Watson wrote one another between 1956 and 1961; at that time, she was a graduate student in Toronto studying for her doctorate under the supervision of Marshall McLuhan while Wilfred, a recently appointed professor of English at the University of Alberta, was in Edmonton seeking to build on his reputation as an internationally recognized poet and to establish himself as an avant garde playwright. Paul Hjartarson and Shirley Neuman are co-editing the letters. The letters will be published in print and digitally.
